Abstract

SE PRESENTA UNA RED DE VIDEO A SOLICITUD (VODN), QUE TRANSMITE SEÑALES DE VIDEO (VS) A ESTACIONES DE USUARIOS (US1...,US2N) A TENOR DE LA RECEPCION DE SEÑALES DE CONTROL (CS) EMITIDAS POR LAS ESTACIONES DE LOS USUARIOS. NETWORK PRESENTS A REQUEST VIDEO (VODN), which transmits video signals (VS) A user stations (US1 ... US2N) A TENOR OF RECEIPT control signals (CS) ISSUED BY THE STATIONS USERS. CON OBJETO DE OPTIMIZAR LOS COSTOS DE RECUPERACION, ESTA RED DE VIDEO A SOLICITUD MANTIENE UNA GRAN LIBRERIA DE VIDEO EN UN DISPOSITIVO SERVIDOR (CS) DE VIDEO CENTRAL, Y ALMACENA LOCALMENTE SEÑALES DE VIDEO POPULARES EN UNA PLURALIDAD DE SERVIDORES (DS1/2) DE VIDEO DISTRIBUIDOS LOCALES, DESDE LOS CUALES SE TRANSMITEN LAS ULTIMAS SEÑALES DE VIDEO A LAS ESTACIONES DE LOS USUARIOS. In order to optimize recovery costs, THIS NETWORK VIDEO ON DEMAND REMAINS A LARGE LIBRARY VIDEO IN A DEVICE SERVER (CS) CENTRAL VIDEO, AND LOCALLY STORED SIGNS OF POPULAR VIDEO IN ONE OF SERVERS (DS1 / 2) Plurality of DISTRIBUTED LOCAL VIDEO FROM WHICH transmit signals LATEST VIDEO TO THE SEASONS OF USERS. LAS SEÑALES DE VIDEO PROPORCIONADAS POR LOS DISPOSITIVOS SERVIDORES DISTRIBUIDOS LOCALES SE ACTUALIZAN DESDE EL DISPOSITIVO SERVIDOS CENTRAL, BASANDOSE EN LA POPULARIDAD DEL CAMBIO DE LAS SEÑALES DE VIDEO. VIDEO SIGNALS SUPPLIED BY DEVICES DISTRIBUTED SERVERS LOCAL UPDATES FROM THE DEVICE IS SERVED CENTRAL BASED ON THE POPULARITY OF CHANGE OF VIDEO SIGNALS. LA PRESENTE INVENCION PROPORCIONA ESPECIALMENTE EL ALMACENAMIENTO DE SEÑALES DE VIDEO EN LOS DISPOSITIVOS SERVIDORES DISTRIBUIDOS LOCALES, EN MEMORIAS (HDA) DE LECTURA Y ESCRITURA DE ACCESO ALEATORIO, POR EJEMPLO RAMS Y DISCOS MAGNETICOS U OPTICOS, DESDE LOS CUALES PUEDEN SUMINISTRARSE FLEXIBLEMENTE LAS SEÑALES DE VIDEO ON-LINE A LAS ESTACIONES DE LOS USUARIOS Y ALMACENAR LAS SEÑALES DE VIDEO EN EL DISPOSITIVO SERVIDOR CENTRAL, EN MEMORIAS DE ACCESO SECUENCIAL, POR EJEMPLO CINTAS AUDIO DIGITALES (DAT) Y CDROMS, PROPORCIONANDO ALMACENAMIENTO MASIVO ECONOMICO. The present invention provides especially STORAGE OF VIDEO SIGNALS IN SERVERS DEVICES DISTRIBUTED LOCAL IN MEMORY (HDA) READING AND WRITING RANDOM ACCESS FOR EXAMPLE RAMS AND DISCS magnetic or optical FROM WHICH MAY flexible SUPPLIED video signals ON-LINE TO THE SEASONS OF USERS AND STORING VIDEO SIGNALS IN CENTRAL SERVER DEVICE IN MEMORY OF SEQUENTIAL ACCESS, DIGITAL AUDIO TAPES FOR EXAMPLE (DAT) and CDROMS, PROVIDING ECONOMIC Mass storage.
